It's worth noting that the gross wages shown represent the average in that particular country, rather than a random universal gross income level for each. That way it provides a more accurate portrait of how salaries compare around the world, which helps also give a bit of insight into how different the cost of living is in different places. So, just to clarify, the countries are organized in the chart from those with highest average gross income (Switzerland), to the lowest (Mexico).
So where can you expect to walk away with the most take home pay? According to HowMuch's findings, workers in Switzerland have the highest net wages (a.k.a. post-tax income), followed by Luxembourg, and then Iceland. These are the 10 countries with the highest take home pay after paying taxes.
